Doosan Corporation is developing a 10kW solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) that has the world’s highest power generation efficiency, the company has said.
The SOFC will be capable of being implemented into buildings and houses from 2022 and will provide renewable energy generation.
When compared to existing polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC), the 10kW SOFC has a 40% higher power generation efficiency whilst also be capable of saving about 50% of space.
This means the SOFC can be installed in a range of buildings and will not take up vast amounts of room.
Kim Deok-hyun, BU Manager of Doosan Corporation Fuel Cell Power said, “As a result of internal testing, we can confidently say that the power generation efficiency of this product is the highest in the world.
“We will lead the fuel cell market for building owners and houses through SOFC products.”
